I MEAN IT MAKES NO SENCE…..FOR THE FIGHT

      wrong! jones has been training not for chael but he has been training. and chael is willing to do it on short notice. every other champ takes fights and doesnt turn down anything. jones caused them to cancel the whole event now all the fighters on undercard wont get paid. fans in that town are going to be cheesed. jones just made himself look bad in the bosses eyes the fans eyes other fighters eyes. ultimately in the long run jones just hurt his career.

    DANA SHOULD OF HAD A BETTER BACK UP PLAN… BUT IT MAKES ME ALSO WONDER LOL… IF IT WOULD OF BEEN ME I WOULD OF WANTED IT TO BE CHAEL CUZ HE IS COMING OFF A LOSS AND ALL… YOU MAKE SENCE IF I WANTED AN EASY FIGHT… IF THIS WOULD OF WENT DOWN HIS TRAINERS ARE RIGHT IT COULD OF ENDED IN A PRETTY BAD WAY YALL GET WHAT IM SAYIN

    Well think about this Patrick, the UFC has spent MILLIONS of dollars promoting an event. And you’re making millions of dollars with this company, shouldn’t you try and help them, so they can continue to make you rich?

    8 Days notice? Doesn’t Sonnen also have 8 days notice? and isn’t he a 185er? And haven’t they been going back and forth on twitter with Jones challenging Chael to move up in weight? Now that Chael is doing it, Jones is backpedaling..

    Since when do fighters get to pick and choose who they are fighting anyways?

    • MMAKansas says:

      All the more reason to hate on Jones – he sucks as a person, plain and simple, and he’s more of a diva now than Ando.

    Fighter Reactions to Jones via twitter.

    michael ‏@bisping
    Jones said he’s not fighting chael on 8 days notice. I did. …. Just sayin

    TJ Dillashaw @TJDillashaw
    I can’t believe a whole show was canceled because of Jon Jones!! He should have to relinquish his belt

    Michael Chiesa @MikeMav22
    @JonnyBones is a fraud. He’s all about his $$ but he won’t take a fight with @sonnench who would bring in WAY more $$? He’s scared, period.

    Vinny Magalhaes @VinnyMMA
    How to ruin an entire event #BonesKnows
    Things that people learned today: Chael @sonnench is the man! A lot of people will be losing money. Jon Jones doesn’t give a shit.

    Charlie Brenneman @SpaniardMMA

    @JonnyBones u can send my check to PO box 198. EH NJ. Rent is due the first, so preferably by then. Thanks. @ufc

    Mackens Semerzier @MackDaMenaceMMA
    Cancel the whole damn event? What happend to “I’ll fight whoever the @ufc tells me to” or does that only apply to fighting “friends”?

    DaMarques Johnson @DaMarques_UFC

    Brad Tavares @BradTavares

    Henry Martinez @HenryMartinez83
    I train my ass off I sacrifice myself&my family and my fights get canceled and sponsors bullshit me and don’t pay. #UFC151canceled #livid

    Michael Chiesa @MikeMav22
    99.999% of @UFC fighters will be “company men” and help our organization if needed. @sonnench is a company man, @jonnybones is selfish.

    Ulysses Gomez @uselessgomez
    Bones wouldn’t be taking the fight on “8 days notice” he’s been training for a fight for at least 8 weeks! Chael is same style as Hendo. But he said no?

    Abel Trujillo @AbelTrujillo1
    The news of UFC 151 cancelled is heartbreaking!!! Trying to stay positive that its Gods plan & not mine!!! Jon Jones is selfish For that!!!

    john albert @UFCPrinceAlbert
    I am so livid right now I was the biggest Jon jones fan but not anymore that guy is bad for the sport his fans and other fighters he doesn’t
    Understand or forgot what it’s like being a lower ranked fighter like me or @JeffHougland who make pennies compared to him and fighting is
    Our livelihood and we survive by fighting and all the hard work those 20 other fighters put in are goin to waste utterly discusted

    Brock Jardine @BrockJardine
    If u wanted to make money y wouldn’t u want to fight @sonnench who was just part of biggest ppv in @ufc history Really disappointed

  6. PATRICK says:

    LOL WOW THATS SOME FUNNY ASS SHIT… HE SHOULD CHANGE HIS MIND

    • MMAKansas says:

      Chris Weidman also a middleweight offered to go up and fight Jon, that got turned down too.

      Jon just basically said to the entire MMA fanbase and all of his sponsors “I am scared”.

      • dashamas3000 says:

        Surely he’s not scared. The message that comes across is “I don’t give a f*** about anyone but Jon Jones”

        There’s absolutely no reason to turn down the fight.

        Its damn ironic that Jackson told him, “If you take the fight with Chael it will be the worst move of your career.”

        I’m pretty sure that not taking the fight was the worst move of his career.

      • MMAKansas says:

        Hate. Jones.

  7. MMAKansas says:

    @BV – How about we change the poll now to something more appropriate and not Jon Jones centered seeing as how he is the center of his own universe and the Hendo fight’s off..

    • bvrasp says:

      Yeah Kansas, I’m just waiting for the roulette wheel to finally stop spinning. At this moment, it looks like it will be Vitor vs Jones at UFC 152 in Toronto, which is now being called UFC 151… Sigh… what a mess.

      I’m thinking to give it the rest of the week to be official before making a new poll.

      Also, it looks like the king of september tourney will only consist of 2 events now, instead of 3. Jones reall screwd things up for EVERYBODY didn’t he?

  8. Banned says:

    I SAY REMOVE HIM FROM OUR BANNER

    • bvrasp says:

      The banner is an annual thing, so I guess Jones has until the end of the year to fix this somehow. If he’s still the champ, he will probably still be on the banner. He will probably be in a suit though, just like GSP is for this year – considering he seems to be more of a business man than a fighter these days….

      • MMAKansas says:

        Now UFC brass the Fertitta bros are saying “Shogun” turned down the fight too, sullying his name in this mess ..

        Dudes on a 90 day no contact suspension post UFC on Fox, he legally CANNOT fight, wth is their problem??? Seems like Dana and Zuffa/co are just lashing out at everyone in frustration like a bunch of angry kids spreading collateral damage everywhere.. not handled well..

  9. Amir says:

    Hahaha, what a travesty and joke the UFC is quickly becoming…
    the hits just keep on coming. The first relevent PPV everyone has been waiting for in months, and this happens.

  10. Amir says:

    People still have the nerve to hate on Sonnen when the guy is all heart. Jones would have easily destroyed Sonnen anyway but chose the easy way out. Where is the dream matchup fans have deserved to see a long time ago (Anderson Silva)?
    Rumor has it Silva offered to fight at this event, i’m calling b.s.
    I guarantee Dana, Silva, Ed Soares, etc. all want to improve Silva’s bad image and just put this story out there to make him seem like a “good guy”.

  11. bvrasp says:

    Amir, I hated Sonnen’s attempts to turn this sport into the WWE, and he has majorly toned it down since talking about Anderson’s wife. I can tolerate his antics now, but I’m still not a fan of that fake smack talk. I prefer real smack talk like the Rampage/Rashad situation.

    That being said, you’re totally right in this case. Sonnen stepped up on short notice, going up a weight class, and was definitely walking into a slaughter. The guy has some balls, even if it was all about his own publicity, money, etc.. It still takes guts to walk into a beating like that.

    You could be right about the Anderson thing, but even if Anderson did choose to try and save the card himself, it was way too late for it to be considered a realistic offer.
